To predict a realistic outcome of remediation in the source zone to support remedial decisions.
SCARPE is a modeling framework that allows for an efficient evaluation of different remedial technologies in a NAPL source zone.
SCARPE utilizes a Volume -averaged model with site and technology specific NAPL dissolution rates coupled with remedial process models.
How it works
"Seize the Source"
SCARPE treats the source zone as a single or several, large modeling blocks to eliminate the complexities of a numerical groundwater flow model while introducing complex remedial processes. This framework provides a middle ground between numerical model limitations and oversimplified screening models.
By using a framework of Volume averaging applied to robust governing equations, combined with remedy- and architecture-specific mass transfer correlations, SCARPE provides a fast and efficient method to assess remedial performance commensurate with high resolution, complex and intensive numerical modeling.
